SOURCE: why is my 2006 suburu wagon temp gage running hot

Sounds like you have a radiator leak. I would get it checked out a.s.a.p. Heat is the number 1 enemy of cars. Head can blow if it gets too hot.

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

It can be a faulty transmission solenoid, a faulty TCM (transmission control module or can be a bad torque converter. As a first course of action, have it checked before replacing. It's wise to have them checked first than taking a wild guess on what to replace.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Hi, as an experienced person on this field, the four wheel drive has nothing to do with the consumption of fuel in your car. Either you use it or not, it consumes the normal fuel usage except you have some other problem with your car....

You can use my tips below to know some of the reasons why your car is using too much gas

Tire Pressure Under-inflated or over-inflated tires can negatively affect gas mileage and pose safety issues. Check the sidewall of the tires to see what the ideal tire pressure is and use a tire pressure gauge to see how your tire pressure compares.
Air Filters A dirty air filter can reduce your gas mileage. Checking it, or having it checked every time you have the oil changed, and changing it when necessary can help increase your fuel efficiency.

Faulty spark plugs, dragging brakes, kinked vacuum lines and faulty fuel injectors can cause your car to use more fuel than you think it should. Take your car to a mechanic; he should be able to identify the problem.

SOURCE: 92 suburu svx it has wiring gremlins check engin

The check engine light will set a code, to read this code you must have the system scanned with a special tool. This is not a wiring GREMLIN, trust me. As far as the gas gauge goes you will need to pull the fuel tank out and replace the gas gauge fuel level sending unit.

My check engine light flashes when driving or just sitting in park. it will go out when car deccelarates. when flashing the rpm's go up but loses power. Fuel pump/filter? 2007 jeep patriot

This is due to a misfiring engine cylinder, have a fault code test done to determine exactly which cylinder is dead. Do not drive the car this way, it will damage the Catalytic Converter ($500 part) and can cause a fire.

I have a 2005 mazda 3 and when i put it in park it overheats on me but put it in drive and its fine

a lot of things could be wrong here there could be a clog some where in the cooling system when you put the transmission in park the idle increases which makes the engine run hotter do you here your electric engine fan come on at all how are your catalytic convertors a bad one will make engine temp go very high see when your driving your wind cooling the motor but when you stop the engine fan should come on to cool down the motor is there plenty of antifreeze in the radiator coolant recovery bottle and the radiator is your exhaust system quiet or are is it making noise a loss of back pressure will cause higher engine temps also you must try to narrow it down and be more precise and the solution will come LATER MAN!

2007 chevy impala gets hot sitting at light and when driving, what is the problem?

If the engine overheats standing still and while driving it points to a problem with either the coolant level is too low or there is a problem with the radiator fan. Make sure the coolant level is topped up and there are no leaks and check and see if the radiator fan comes on when the engine reaches operating temperature.

Hi, I have a 2007 Edge SEL Plus, and after highway driving and coming to a stop at traffic lights I smell burning oil and see a little smoke coming from under the hood, I only have 28k on the vehicle and...

Either you have an oil leak dripping onto the exhaust or an engine breather pipe is loose or ruptured. Eitherway have these checked out as they pose one or both of a fire or health hazard.

If I were you ,I would remove the plentum and make sure the injectors are not leaking onto the intake manifold and creating a pocket of fuel,witch could cause a engine fire while driving.
